This month, Paul Testa Architecture obtained planning approval to build an earth-sheltered home in the United Kingdom. The Burrows is a highly sustainable single-family home that will be built into a hillside in South Yorkshire. Because it is built into the earth, the home will be super insulated, both in the winter and the summer, which will significantly reduce heating and cooling costs. The home will be built to Passivhaus standards (also a first for Yorkshire), and Testa is also aiming for AECB Gold standard.
